Lots of people are quite shy, might not rate their cars for instance. It's taken me til this year to get to any shows, just as I thought my car wasn't nearly ready enough.

I actually still don't, but just decided to come anyway.

I didn't see you at PVS...

Or you could just do what I do, pretend not to go and watch people be hyprocrits in person, it's quite amusing.

We do need so more Tec & Mod questions with more meat though

Most folk will give up answering 'How will 15's look' questions 10x or so

once or twice a week an iteresting useful question will be asked.

Yes, like the question 'PICS?' That's a very useful question, I'm pleased with most answers too.

He said once or twice a week, not once or twice in the first 30 seconds of any newbie post for example

ach.....

Maybe longer standign memebers nned to start posting questions with more substance to get folk thinking etc.....

No harm in a pointless post if its informative! Usefull SPAM!

But then you have to think..... How many folk on this site will understand or even be able to add something worthwhile to a usefull post. A post about cam profiles on a x16xe for example....

Did you know that Bilstein shock absorbers typically use nitrogen gas at 2atm to keep the hydraulic fluid in the shock from foaming, ensuring consistent damping throughout a journey?

il tell you waht the problem is here, its the type of car this site is aimed at, a vauxhall corsa, the majority of people that drive this car are old granny's, people who have just passed there test, or people that are only interested in sticking fibreglass tat on it. There is a minority of people interested in turning it into a performance car, or interested in its tuning potential.

The majority of said people dont have the brains or arent interested in asking "meaty" questions only how they can get there car closer to max power live, or into a mag.

Take a scooby for example where in this case the MAJORITY of owners are into tuning it, i bet if you take a look at scooby.net the posts are of far more sensible nature.

So IMO its to do with the type of car this site is aimed at and the type of people that own this car
